Effects of the idolatry in Israel during the time of Elijah were;

  • God raised prophets to bring Israel back to the covenant way of life.
  • There was persecution/hostility towards Yahweh's people/prophets.
  • Baal prophets/prophetesses were brought to Israel.
  • There was corruption/social injustices/people rejected the covenant way of life.
  • Israelites practices syncretism/mixed the worship of Yahweh with baal.
  • Israel lost its identity as a nation of God's people.
  • A contest was held at Mt. Carmel to prove who was the true God.
  • God's punishment to baal worshippers was they will die by the sword.
